I am addicted to The Sims 3.

Well. Not addicted addicted, but I played it for about three hours straight yesterday. And I'll probably do something similar when I get back from class tonight (... yes, I'm in class right now-- LJing while taking notes on the side, yay). It's a good thing it's summer.

Also, I am completely loving this paid account oh my God. I originally got it for more icon space, but the extra layouts are amazing, too.

Okay, so we went over to Alwood yesterday to see the Clabaughs, who are renting (Laura and I made Jenny our SLAVE), and we watched Pippi Longstocking. You know, the badly-dubbed Swedish one that I was TOTALLY OBSESSED WITH WHEN I WAS SEVEN. Seriously, I was way too excited about seeing it again. And now I really want to go out and buy it, along with the not-as-good one with the corny-but-great songs. Oh, yes. 

And also on the nostalgia topic- guess what CD-ROM I found lurking over at Dad's this morning? ROLLER COASTER TYCOON 2. ZOMGYES. I recall many, many hours spent screwing around with that game, making things such as an unnaturally small observation tower named 'The Holly Short', and christening merry-go-rounds things such as 'We've Turned the Corner' (Bush should SO be thanking us for the free publicity) and 'The Merry-and-Pippin-Go-Round'. Also, killing people by purposely making the rides defective. I wish I could still remember how to do that; it was great fun.
I also think one of the best was when we named a ride Nemo, and then hid it away in a very inaccessible place (like in the middle of a lake or something, probably). Everyone was wandering around going, "I can't find Nemo!" It was fantastic. 
That game will go down in history (along with Zoo Tycoon- animal abuse, The Scientist Frenzy, reenacting books- and Let's Ride: Rosemond Hill- glitches galore, impossible horse feats, JOHN) as one of the games that is soooo much more fun when played incorrectly. Whee.
